[Dbworld] New Book on Designing Educational Software

Tchounikine, Pierre
Computer Science and Educational Software Design
A Resource for Multidisciplinary Work in Technology Enhanced Learning
1st Edition., 2011, XIII, 180 p. 1 illus.
Hardcover, ISBN 978-3-642-20002-1

Developing educational software requires thinking, problematizing, representing, modeling,
and analyzing pedagogical objectives and issues, as well as conceptual models and software
Computer scientists face the difficulty of understanding the particular issues and phenomena to be taken 
into account in educational software projects and of avoiding a naïve technocentered perspective. On
other hand, actors with backgrounds in human or social sciences face the difficulty of understanding 
software design and implementation issues, and how computer scientists engage in these tasks.

Tchounikine argues that these difficulties cannot be solved by building a kind of “general theory” or 
“general engineering methodology” to be adopted by all actors for all projects: educational software 
projects may correspond to very different realities, and may be conducted within very different 
perspectives and with very different matters of concern. Thus the issue of understanding each others’ 
perspectives and elaborating some common ground is to be considered in context, within the considered 
project or perspective. To this end, he provides the reader with a framework and means for actively 
taking into account the relationships between pedagogical settings and software, and for working
in a multidisciplinary way to develop educational software.

His book is for actors engaged in research or development projects which require inventing, designing, 
adapting, implementing or analyzing educational software. The core audience is Master’s and PhD
researchers and engineers from computer science or human and social sciences (e.g., education,
